Start saving for your child's future education with Wealthsimple

It’s time to start saving for future education. Attend our 2023 Fall financial workshops and unlock up to $2,000 per child for school.

For most people, increasing education also increases earnings. Going to university, on average, increases your lifetime earnings by about $1,000,000. 

Are you a parent or youth saving up for upcoming post-secondary education costs? You may be eligible to receive a minimum of $500 up to $2000 with the Canada Learning Bond! Join us, and our partners at Wealthsimple Foundation, for an education savings workshop in your community to help you unlock government funding for college, university or trades school. 

We'll help you open a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)

  • A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is an account designed to save for your own, or a child’s, post-secondary education. 
  • With an RESP, you gain access to various government grants including Canada Learning Bond benefits.
  • There are no account fees and it takes 10 minutes; we’ll help you open an RESP on-site! 

Canada Learning Bond

  • TCHC residents are eligible for the Canada Learning Bond, which is a government grant for modest income families to help pay for school.
  • Each child can receive a minimum of $500 up to $2,000 in Canada Learning Bond benefits, with no contribution required.
  • The bond does not impact any other government assistance or grants you may currently be receiving.

  • How much post-secondary education costs
  • Information about applying for student loans (OSAP)
  • How to open a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)
  • Canada Learning Bond (CLB) and Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG)
